Part of BV1 Baroque Variations
About This Performance
After several conversations with visual artist David Michalek regarding a potential collaboration, Gil Shaham thought it would be possible to add David's unique 21st century vision to the three-hundred-year-old Six Solos for Violin with the goal of opening up new avenues for listening and interpreting these great works while preserving Bach's message.
Come for: The Sei solo – “six alone” – as Bach labeled his set of three sonatas and three partitas for solo violin, are iconic landmarks of European culture, not just the violin repertory. They opened new worlds of expressive and technical possibilities.
And more: The legendary violin playing of Gil Shaham, set to a video production by David Michalek.
Gil Shaham will be signing CDs at the lobby entrance to the LA Phil Store on March 29th.
